Intro:


C Em G C (2x)


Verse 1:


C               Em  
This town was a lovers stage 
     G                  C
but now you can't recognise
C                         Em              G
the streetlights that are daggers to your eyes
F                     Am
You can't find your bearings
       F                  C
you're slipping into the ground
    F            Am            Em        G
The scene has no colour and no sound.


Verse 2:


C            Em
You still believe in me 
 G                     C
after the things I've done
 C           Em             G
You fear for what we have become
F               Am
The ground is uneven
F                       C
you stumble from day to day
F                   Am        
You tread where its easy
              Em           
although your feet are like lead
        G                F
and you gotta get underway


Chorus:


F          C                Em      Am
Drag your heart up to the starting line
F            C                   G
Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
F       C            Em     Am
Its too easy to get left behind
Dm                 
I know you've been kicked around
    F                                           C     Em    G   C
but tie up your thoughts and lay them down on me.


Verse 3:


C               Em         G                   Am
Each heart is a paper kite blown around by the breeze
C                      Em                  G
Love wont rest till it brings you to your knees
F            Am    F                    C
Some find it easy, some will never even know
F                         Am
You think youve done your journey,
           Em                          G
then you stumble and find that theres such a long way to go


Chorus:


(F)        C              Em       Am
Drag your heart up to the starting line
F            C                   G
Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
F       C            Em     Am
Its too easy to get left behind
Dm 
I know you've been kicked around
F
You wanna be lost but now your found
Bb
lets take the back way into town
F
Drink to the bad times
                   C     Em     G     C 
Lay them down on me

C Em G C   


Verse 4:


C             Em
Girl, I still believe in you
         G               C
your too good to fall so low
C                  Em            G
we're gonna find a better life I know
F              Am
Things will be clearer
F                    C
as soon as we make a start
F                  Am
we'll be that much nearer
          Em                     G                  F                    
we're too old to just stand here waiting to break apart


Chorus:


(F)        C              Em       Am
Drag your heart up to the starting line
F            C                   G
Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
F       C            Em     Am
Its too easy to get left behind
Dm
I know you've been kicked around
F                                               C     Em     G     C
but tie up your thoughts and lay them down on me.     On me...

C     Em     G     C
On me...
